The “Farming Concrete Data Collection Toolkit” can help you measure all of the good things growing in your farm, garden, or yard.
Urban farmers and gardeners add to the social and environmental health of their communities every day. This toolkit helps you keep track of all of that. It shows the benefits that your farm or garden has, so you can improve and share your practice, and it’s impact, with funders or policy makers.
The toolkit was created by and for urban farmers and gardeners. Inside, are twenty different ways to measure, track and analyze how well a garden is meeting its goals. These measuring tools include: pounds of vegetables harvested on a farm in a season, to things like the number of times a visitor is made to feel joyful as a result of walking through the garden gate.
